How To Make A Webpage

If you’ve never made a web page before, the idea can seem a little scary. However, making a web page is not as difficult as it once was. You no longer need to mess with learning code in order to set up a website unless, of course, you want to. Here is how to make a webpage the easy way.

Most people can create a perfectly suitable website using blogging software. This software makes the web page creation process easy. There are several places online where you can get a free blog without even downloading or installing any software. The most popular of these are Blogger and WordPress.

If you would like to make money from your web page, you either need to set it up on Blogger or get your own web hosting account. Blogger is the easiest way to start but using a third party service can be a little risky because they control your content. If they decide they will no longer allow the type of content you publish, your site could be deleted from the system.

For this reason, many people choose to get their own website hosting from the beginning and use a WordPress installation to host their blogs. This might sound complicated, but it really isn’t. Many popular hosting companies offer something called Fantastico, which can install the WordPress software for you automatically. Hosting is not expensive either. You can get a good hosting package for about $10 per month and the cost of a domain name is only about $10 per year.

Once you have an account set up with Blogger or have WordPress installed on your own web hosting, it is very easy to get your web page built. Both platforms have simple interfaces for entering posts and uploading photos. They also have a variety of templates that can be used to give your website the feel you are looking for.

Even if you want to post videos or sell products on your website, a blog platform can be the way to go. Blogs can easily handle video content. They are often used for websites that offer podcasts for this reason. And if you want to sell something, you can use Paypal buy buttons or a shopping cart script to integrate the sale of products into your website. However, this is a lesson for another day. Now that you know how to make a webpage, it’s time to take the first step. Decide which platform you want to use and get started.
